I tried out a used Gibson Les Paul Double Cut. I liked the size and weight. It felt very good. Had a nice acoustic vibe. I found vibratos a little easier to do than a Semi Hollow body with the same gauge strings. I didn't pay too much attention to sound through the amp ( I can't even remember what I used), because I'd change the the standard 490R/498T pups for something more PAFish. I find the one V&T with 3 way very efficient, but I have a Gibson GA-5 LP Jr. amp (5w, 8", volume only) and I've found the 2V/2T good for getting a wide tone range. Anybody else's experience or opinions on the LP DC would be appreciate here.
